How Strip Clubs and Hip-Hop Fueled Atlanta's Lemon-Pepper Wing Obsession | Food Grails

  • Published on: 12 July 2017
  • Welcome to Food Grails, First We Feast's traveling food and culture series hosted by Miss Info. As a music journalist, she's traveled the world and seen the power of artists who rep for their hometown sound. Now, she wants to discover how foods define a city’s flavor—from D.C.'s mumbo sauce to NYC's beef patties. These are America’s food grails.

    For the Food Grails season finale, Miss Info heads to Atlanta, a city that takes pride in its strip clubs, hip-hop, and wing culture. But talk to locals and you'll quickly learn that one wing stands above the rest—lemon pepper. Natives have fiercely claimed lemon pepper as their own, turning it into an icon that's been referenced in rap lyrics, television, and pop-culture. To find out why so many people have fallen under its spell, we head to strip clubs like Magic City, taste-test wings in backyard parties with Rembert Browne, and talk to some of lemon pepper's biggest supporters, Waka Flocka, Rick Ross, and Donald Glover.

    Everyone clowned on the dude showing them the flat technique, but I'm honestly amazed that they don't all do it already. Clean bones, everytime. LET THE MAN SPEAK

    "When you a kid, you want some drums. When grow up, you want some flats." Okay, but whether I was a kid or an adult, at least I knew how to finish a fucking wing, Drum or Flat, you Abercrombie & Bitch, Mom and Dad taught me how to Snitch, live Sandy Springs but say I'm from Alanta, Pale White Bitch.

    I need to find one of Rick Ross's WingStop's because ever since the one near me changed management, the lemon pepper has been terrible. Barely any pepper, even less lemon. Wingstop has the best lemon pepper when it's done right.
